PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
In consideration for being permitted to participate in any or all events and related activities of 0916239 B.C. LTD. (hereinafter referred to as Pooch Partners), I hereby warrant and agree that:
I am physically, emotionally and mentally able to participate in Pooch Partners’ activities, and that any equipment used, if applicable, has been inspected by me and I have deemed it appropriate for my use and/or my dog’s use.
I further warrant that my dog is not aggressive towards people or animals, is obedient and capable of following commands from myself as well as others, and is current with all of the vaccinations and booster shots as recommended by my veterinarian.
I certify that I and my dog(s) are physically fit, have sufficiently trained for participation in the event(s)/activity, and have not been advised against participation by a qualified health professional or veterinarian.
I agree to immediately disclose any physical limitations, disabilities, ailments or problems which may affect my or my dog’s ability to participate in Pooch Partners’ activities.
I agree to abide by all Pooch Partners’ instructions and rules and understand that at all times the sole responsibility for the conduct and safety of myself and my dog remains with me.
I acknowledge that there may be traffic and/or other persons and dogs on routes used, and I assume all risks of participating in the event(s)/activities under these circumstances. I also assume any and all risks associated with participating in the event(s)/activities including but not limited to falls, contact and/or effects with other participants (human and/or canine), effects of weather including heat, cold, and/or humidity, precipitation, lightning, defective equipment, the condition of the trails, water hazards, running with minimal, inappropriate or no footwear, and any hazard that may be posed by spectators or volunteers, all such risks being known and appreciated by me; and I further acknowledge that these risks include risks that may be the result of the negligence of Pooch Partners, their directors, officers, employees, trainers, contractors, agents, representatives, sponsors, advertisers, volunteers, and any others participating in any capacity.
I understand that there are inherent risks to me, my dog, to others, and to property in participating in any exercise and obedience training programs, and special risks when such activities are conducted outdoors, whether my dog is on or off-leash, including but not limited to risks presented by or to other dogs, people, cyclists, motor vehicles, or any other wild or domestic animals.
I understand that having my dog in the company of and in an environment with other dogs may involve risks regarding the contraction of illness, and that even proper, regular vaccinations cannot guard dogs against all illness and disease, nor can Pooch Partners in any way prevent, nor be held responsible in any way for any illness that my dog may contract.

I understand that for these safety reasons, this situation must be avoided and I agree to follow Pooch Partners’ cancellation policy if there is any possibility that my dog may be in heat and I need to miss a session.
